Qwik Chinese Bistro's name says it all. Its chefs revel in Chinese classics, stir-frying and steaming a menu of familiar staples and special touches to quell sudden hungers. The characteristic flavors that define everything from pork lo mein to crispy bone-in duck take strength from the ardent avoidance of MSG and the strict use vegetable oil. Then there's the panoply of flavors: spicy Szechwan sauce, ginger, bamboo shoots, diced chili peppers, lemon sauce, and sesame mingling for hot and healthy inventions. While some dishes stick to their traditional roots, some embrace New World influences, such as sautéed shrimp in lobster sauce and moo goo gai pan arranged into a portrait of Abraham Lincoln.
